Description of Practice

I am a trained Collaborative Divorce attorney. Collaborative Divorce takes the divorce out of the court system. Each party has a lawyer and a coach (mental health professional) who work together to assist the couple in resolving the conflict, using specially developed techniques rather than adversarial strategies and litigation. The team, which might also include a financial or child specialist, creates an environment that allows the couple to be less defensive, so that they can work together, respect each others feelings, and act in the best interests of entire family – especially the children. Collaborative Divorce is an alternative to traditional litigation. You will be not going to court. You and your spouse will keep control of the decisions, rather than giving them up to a judge.
